Live In The Future, Now!

Everyone's always said we'd eventually live in a nightmarish world of privatized corporate armies. But who will do the necessary management consulting in our hideous dystopia? Laura Rozen has the answer, here.

The name of the company is particularly hilarious. These are funny, funny people.

TITLE SWIPED: From "I Think We're All Bozos on This Bus".

The links on this web site can take you just ANYWHERE! I must follow them more judiciously in future.

This is the future - you got to live it, or live with it.

management consulting

Huh? I thought the management consulting was the domain of K Street and other regionally interested political action committees.

These boys are just the the tip of the spear and the praetorians of the oligarchy now that the regular troops are looking ragged. The management consult gig has been owned for ages.

Thanks for the link to one of my all-time favorite Firesign Theatre albums. The future! A fair for all and no fair to anybody!

I misread the line to say "The world of tomorrow must be built with the fools of today". I suppose it takes equal measures of fools and tools to turn the future into such shit, though.
